Step 1: Create a Company Page

It would be best if you first had a personal profile on LinkedIn that contains your full name to create a LinkedIn company page.

You may quickly create one by going to LinkedIn’s site, clicking Join Now, and following the directions.

After you’ve finished this, you’ll be able to customize a company page.

Follow These Steps to Create Your Company Page:

Click the Work icon in the top right corner of your personal LinkedIn homepage. You may then choose to Create a Company Page from the drop-down menu at the bottom of the list.

Select the type of page you want to make by following the guided prompts:

Institution of Higher Learning

You’ll be requested to submit your company details after selecting the sort of page you want (most likely a Company Page). Provide your company’s name, URL, and industry information on this page. Click “Submit.”

After filling in all of your company’s details, click Create Page and check the verification box at the bottom.

Step 2: Create a Free Job Posting

It is free to post a job on LinkedIn. Click the Work symbol on your LinkedIn profile’s dashboard, then the Post a Job icon from the drop-down menu.

This will take you to a form where you can fill in your work details. Enter the job title, firm name, kind of workplace (on-site, hybrid, or remote), employee location, and type of employment.

When you’ve finished filling out all fields, click Get Started For Free.

After filling out this area completely, click Continue at the bottom of your screen to continue to the next section. Fill in the following details:

Step 4: Fill in the Applicant Information

Once you’ve completed the job information, click Continue in the lower right-hand corner of the page to get to the applicant options page.

First, specify whether you want to receive applications via email (preferred) or through a third-party website (directs the candidate to apply outside of LinkedIn).

When you receive applications by email, you can include screening questions to help weed out or specify certain qualities you want candidates to check before sending their resumes.

LinkedIn will provide two questions for you to consider. You can keep them or remove them by clicking the X and adding your own or choosing from LinkedIn’s list of suitable questions.

Step 6: Including at Least Three Screening Questions

It is suggested that you include at least three screening questions.

Any screening question can also be made a must-have qualification.

If you choose this option, LinkedIn will automatically screen candidates and send rejection emails to those who do not satisfy your requirements.

The qualification setting is displayed.

Click Post Job for Free after you’ve finished the Applicant Options box.

Step 6: Promote the Job You’ve Posted.

You have the choice of continuing with a free job posting or setting a budget for a promoted job post once your job posting is complete.

Promoting your job posting provides:

  • A top search result position.
  • Top placement in job suggestions.
  • Fast mobile alerts to qualified prospects.
  • A wider pool of candidates.
